So the friendcaster is just an alternate to facebook. The issue I am having is that the facebook pictures show up in the phonebook but in handcent sms since I've updated they don't show at all . I was wondering if there was a way to fix THAT issue Thanks in advance

Yes using friendcaster instead will fix that issue. For me same issue, facebook pictures show in phonebook, not in gosms. Delete your Facebook account information and install friendcaster, log in and after sense links all your contacts you'll be good

Confirmed. Facebook's app has always been a steamy PoS

It is crap. I had the paid version of friendcaster already from using cyanogenmod on my captivate. The facebook app wouldn't sync photos at all on it and even my phonebook had no photos so from googleing i found friendcaster fixes the problem. The free version gets the job done but the paid version removes ads so I went ahead and paid for it.

I was having this problem even with HTC's contact widget. I wiped my facebook app data, then used titanium backup to uninstall the app. I reinstalled the app via google play and synced all contacts and the problem was fixed.

I can confirm that having both Facebook and Friendcaster accounts didn't show contact pictures, but removing the Facebook account entirely fixed the issue in a minute or two. Thanks for the advice!

I have confirmed that that using friend caster does work to get the contact pics on go sms. Thanks for making this thread. U can get the paid verision of friend caster on 4shared for free. But this is awesome lol.

This happened to me with stock SMS and my people (contact) list when I flashed from on custom ROM to another. Once I installed GOSMS it fixed the problem everywhere. So its not just ICS nor is it just Sense related. Who knows what the fark it is really.

I'm just happy it got fixed.
